22 posts on the Friday game thread. Very disconcerting.

Unfortunately (or furtunately) this board is dominated by
Norwich
Oswego
Plattsburgh

Very little from the West and other Eastern schools.
Hammer does Adrian
hockeymom does a bit on SNC
I do a little bit of this and a little bit of that

but we're not getting new blood, are we?

As good a thread as any.

How about some opinions on this. I love Plattsburgh's road uni's but never get to see them as I'm unable to travel for the away games. Anybody know for sure how the tradition started, and why? Contrast for viewers makes the most sense to me for when all we had was black and white TV. I can also see where an opponents uni's are similar, that lack of contrast could be a problem, but I'd be in favor of a tradition change here.

Always loved the Cards road reds. Prior to 1995 or so the team used blue as an accent color and I thought it was a great look. This year's "Throwback" uni will look similar to that worn from about 1984-89. I also love the classic look used by Middlebury. Obviously, I dislike the green/gold and maroon/gold combinations !!

I absolutely hate our road jerseys. The crest/logo on the front is not a good look. Our womens' team actually has a really good road jersey. A simple black jersey, with ADRIAN across the front, the paw print underneath, and gold numbers. I'd prefer the guys go to that as well.

Allways liked the Lakers 3rd jersey; gold with cursive Oswego and the womens away with diagonal block letters. Waiting for a re-draw on our logo. Not a big fan

I know I don't need to see your road jerseys; say in Minneapolis!

I heard George Como complaining about the Norwich "camo" sweaters. I think they are great. Makes a statement! Plus they put the names on the back of the sweaters in BIG BLOCK LETTERS. :-)

I love when both teams wear color jerseys, when appropriate of course. USC/UCLA always wear their home jerseys for their football game, and the powder blue on the field against the Trojan red looks awesome. But I remember back in 2004/2005 when Illinois made their Final Four run in basketball and they always wore orange at home, which was fine until they did so against Wisconsin (who was wearing red) and even the announcers had a difficult time following the action.

For a hockey reference, look at last year's Winter Classic: http://www.foxsports.com/content/dam/fsdigital/fscom/NHL/images/2014/01/01/010114NHLWinterClassicGallery/010114-NHL-Winter-Classic-JN-G5.vnocropresize.940.529.medium.11.jpg

EDIT: I now see the article references USC/UCLA. My bad.

EDIT: And the Winter Classic. Probably should've read it in its entirety before I posted.

The Potsdam women jerseys are better than the men's. Especially the ones they had for a few years when they resurrected the women's program, which were actually the men's throwback unis from their early days. Loved that shield on the chest those jerseys had.

As for this year, I really like the men's white jerseys which they wore at Geneseo and Brockport. Nice mix of white and grey, though the POTSDAM lettering on the chest is quite bland.

If you can do something exciting/s e x y with POTSDAM, you're a miracle worker. :)

When they had the cursive script lettering on a slight angle on their jerseys, that was really nice. Those jerseys also included the laces. Definitely the best unis Potsdam ever had. I even have one of them.

Back in the Primelink days for them, didn't they also have bear paw prints on their shoulders? I thought that was a good touch. I do like sweaters with the laces. Neat old school look.

I don't think much will be stirring tonight. Lots of lake effect snow forecast from Buffalo to Potsdam.
